    CPD clamped fins

    Thank you for your reply. When I looked up what you said it came up as ich. So they have dark splotches on them now, I have them in a separate tank and did aquarium salt. In my main tank it’s planted and aquarium salt would kill the plants. I’m worried there’s nothing I can do for the main tank.

    So I can’t add salt to my tank because I have shrimp. I don’t have a quarantine tank at the moment, assuming a container where I changed the water daily wouldn’t be sufficient? Also they don’t have white spots or pimples on them - I know ick would show that as a symptom. Which is why I ruled...

    CPD clamped fins

    Okay I did it - ignore the audio - I was listening to something in the background and couldn’t figure out how to mute the audio. Tried to get close ups of color etc. And then also tried to get all three in the shot at once to show how they’re interacting. The other 3 that are fine are hanging...

    CPD clamped fins

    Update: I did approx a 50% water change. Everyone else still seems okay, and the 3 in question still acting the same as before. I understand it won’t be instantaneous, but how long should I anticipate them to start acting more normal? And how long till fins unclamp?

    New Clown Killifish In Established Tank, Lethargic after ICH treatment

    Ohhh this is all good news. Brine shrimp can’t survive in fresh water right? I don’t want pests in my aquarium and I’m super careful about what I put in there and feed them because I’ve had bad experiences in the past with foods bringing unwanted travelers. But I think brine shrimp (from my...

    CPD clamped fins

    My step mom calls me ‘eagle eyes’ because I notice everything. It’s a blessing and a curse - because it’s combined with anxiety and tons of overthinking. Lol! I noticed 1 has super clamped fins, and lost a bit of color, the second one has slightly less clamped and no color loss, and the third...

    New Clown Killifish In Established Tank, Lethargic after ICH treatment

    Been trying to get my hands on some clown killis for a while now. I hope everything turns out well for you and them. Is it true they only eat live food? And is it also true if there’s even an inch of space in the lid they’ll jump out?

    CPD clamped fins

    I treated the water before I put it in as I always do. I treated it with Prime, I think I mentioned that. I didn’t test my tap water recently, I did test it about a month ago (only notable thing about tap water is it’s .2-.3 ph higher than my aquarium water, which taught me that my fluval...

    So, 50% water change? Final answer? Or wait for others to weigh in?

    CPD clamped fins

    The tap water is slightly harder. My fluval buffers the aquarium water by about .2-.3 - so I could totally take out let’s say 50-70% of water but I’m just worried about the fluval buffering effect and how long that takes to react and I’m afraid that the water change was the problem to begin...

    CPD clamped fins

    I did treat it. And I was thinking to change the water too. But I think it’s the water change that caused this…I’m afraid to change it again.. But with another one clamping up now and they’re swimming at the top all 3 of them I just checked on them. Maybe I should change the water again? But...

    CPD clamped fins

    I have a 24 gallon tank, freshwater, planted, with a combination of fluval stratum and eco complete. I have a few nano fish in there. I did a water change two days ago, 20-25%. I did nothing different from the norm. I backtracked a few times and tried to think of anything different I might’ve...

    Pygmy Cory sick I think, please help!

    When I say did it - I mean isolate him. I didn’t give antibiotics!

    Pygmy Cory sick I think, please help!

    Oh. Okay. I won’t get antibiotic. I don’t want him to get anyone else sick, so I guess that’s why I did it. It was in attempt of doing the right thing! If I should put him back I will! It wasn’t stressful moving him btw - I was gently and he swam right into the net. He seems pretty...

    Pygmy Cory sick I think, please help!

    Pretty sure it is at zero. I use test strips, just got a master test kit recently and didn’t open it yet. I’ll check it out tonight with that. But with the test strips it looks like nitrite and nitrate are at 0. I just assumed the strip was slightly off so I gave the range. But the color stays...

    Pygmy Cory sick I think, please help!

    I don’t have a video of him swimming. I’ll try and get one, but it will be a while I’m guessing because he’s hiding at the moment with all the others. They figured out I was even thinking about maybe isolating him so they hid. Ha. I fed a little bit to see if it would draw him out. I’ll upload...
